De-mystifying the Sticher

Chris Andre

Friday, March 2, 6 pm - 9 pm

Granite Mountain Room - Prescott Resort & Conference Center

If you have ever been stumped by your sewing machine, are the proud owner of a new stitcher, or are planning on purchasing a stitcher, this workshop is for you. Chris “Slickbald” Andre will cover setting up a Class 4 Cobra machine (or similar), finding “home”, tension and thread weights, and go over the accessories as well. Many applications will be demonstrated. Questions are encouraged and students will have the opportunity to practice with the stitchers on hand. Stitchers provided by Leather Machine Co.

Materials to Bring: Note taking materials and a camera
